We go to great lengths to get to know you personally. We ask the right questions, conduct cutting-edge testing and most importantly we truly listen. By fully exploring your past and present health, nutrition, activity and lifestyle and utilizing conventional and innovative lab testing, Dr. Dersam will explore the root cause of your health concerns.

Because we do not participate with any insurance company contracts, this frees us from all of the time-consuming administrative hassles and we can spend more time with you. This translates into more time with the physician and allows us to offer you a team approach to your healthcare. This team includes a physician, nutritionist, health coach and acupuncturist with the addition of a chiropractor, psychologist and/or other alternative therapists as needed at discounted prices.
